The weather – it’s been a gorgeous month of blue skies and fog. We spent the first half of the month getting over colds 1 at a time and getting back out into the sunshine has been deeply nourishing. Our tree remains in the back alley along with the remains of last years – oops. There has been much knitting and story time. i am obsessed with making the Barley hat (ravelry). i’ve been perusing some textile design books and feeling the urge to try out some more dyeing and printing – at this point I’m just trying to use what supplies i have. What sort of craftiness are you folks getting up to these days?
best Christmas gift – Little A’s woven basket. xxxxx this.
i call this my little Geninne corner.
a toe chilling beach morning;
solar powered car;
a very January way of eating;
my spelt soba noodles with watercress above is largely inspired by Harvest below where i have been lunching frequently this month;
preventative measures in our battle against small pests;
We were lucky to see the Nutcracker this Winter and both the music and dance have made a great impression on this little guy. We have daily Tchaikovsky dance sessions;
i’m knitting a blanket to warm up our leather couch – 1 row at a time;
quite possibly the sweetest moment of the month;
Little A’s hat/cowl that he has been working on in his hand works class. so so proud of him!!
idye grey and navy on hemp, linen and cotton – so fun, easy and satisfying;
Beautiful beach days with the 2 littlest;
(a knit shot – he’s wearing his big brother’s hat here);
well if you made it to the end then thank you for being a truly committed blog peruser. I may very well be tapering off to 1 blog post per month that is limited in words and heavy in photos.
